CHICAGO (April 10, 2017) — U.S. Cellular is now offering unlimited high-speed data on its Simple Connect and Ready Connect Prepaid offerings for only $70 per month. The company has also streamlined its plans and added more data to its $35 and $45 plans, which now come with 1GB and 5GB of high-speed data, respectively. All U.S. Cellular prepaid plans come with unlimited talk and text, and customers who choose Ready Connect plans - available at select national retailers - can receive $5 off of the 5GB and unlimited plans when signing up for autopay.

"With these simplified plans we are providing value and flexibility to our prepaid customers, while also giving them an unlimited option so they can use their phone however they want," said Grant Leech, vice president of brand management for U.S. Cellular. "Unlimited data doesn't mean anything without a network that can keep up with people's busy lifestyles, so we provide a fast 4G LTE network that works when and where our customers need it."

With U.S. Cellular's prepaid plans there are no contracts, credit checks, overage charges or activation fees. Customers on the 1GB and 5GB plans never run out of data with unlimited 2G data while on the carrier's network, and all prepaid customers can add unlimited talk and text to Mexico and Canada for $10 per month.
